McBean's List of Horror

Hold on to your hellhounds, kiddies! It's time for another list of HORROR!  

Okay, I'm no Cryptkeeper, so let's just introduce today's horror expert:

Our next book list comes from horror author Brett McBean who has been nominated for the Aurealis, Ditmar, and Ned Kelly awards and has won the 2011 Australian Shadows Award for best collection (Tales of Sin and Madness). He also happens to be a big Beatles and Beethoven fan--in other words, he's a man of refined and outstanding taste. 

But what you're here to see is his impressive list of top horror fiction, so without further ado...
